role playing in IPT

Friday June 16, 2023 13:30- 15:00


This session will focus on utilizing role playing in IPT.  Role playing is critical in clinical work, particularly as a way to model for clients and to practice new ways of communication.  We will cover ways to engage clients in role playing, to structure role plays, and to give feedback to clients about the role play interaction.

The session will include interactive discussion and participant role playing as well as observations of experts demonstrating role playing techniques.
